• Let others know when they’ve invaded your territory.

• Take naps and stretch before rising.

• Run, romp and play daily.

• Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.

• Be loyal.

• Never pretend to be something you’re not.

• If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.

• When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.

• Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

• Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

• On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.

• When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

• No matter how often you’re scolded, don’t buy into the guilt thing and pout .. run right back and make friends.

• Delight in the simple joys of a long walk. — Agencies
